This is Lisa's Recovery Fund. The funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

While visiting my dad in Boston following his hip replacement surgery, my mom was rear-ended at 55 miles an hour. Traumatic Brain Injury was the result of the accident that she still struggles to recover from almost 7 months later. While my dad was at one hospital hundreds of miles away from home, my mom was admitted to a different hospital in Boston. Their children back home in upstate NY unable to know the severity of their mothers injuries. Upon returning home my sister and I where scared and stepped up to the plate to help care for two disabled parents. Family and friends would stop by daily to help the us with caring for my mom and dad. After 6 months of recovery my dad has finally returned to work. My mom has started Neuropsychological testing to evaluate her disabilities at this time and learn how to be proceed with her recovery. She deals with daily symptoms of migraines, blurred vision, neck and shoulder pain, insomnia, vertigo, lack of concentration and memory loss. She is unable to return to work and short term disability has ended. Having both parents out of work for 6 months, and my mom having no clear indication as to whether she will ever return to her nursing career, we have a large financial hardship. Medical bills, medications, doctor visits, increasing gas prices to get to the appointments and paying for Cobra health care insurance has created financial ruin. My sister and I were not able to have new school clothes or supplies this year, as my parents made choices between health insurance or groceries. We continue to pray for healing and answers. We now reach out for any financial help we can get to lessen the load as Lisa (my mom) continues to progress, Our family and friends thank you in advance.
